Recreation of “Judgement of Paris II” blind Pinot tasting with the addition of a bonus wine from the Central Otago:
medium dark ruby • red berry liqueur, potpourri, sous bois, a bit stemmy • very pure, very tannic, excellent persistence • made from 70% whole clusters, foot-stomped, barrique-aged, named after grower Mimi Casteel, the most tannic in the Linqua Franca range and in this flight • will reward long-term aging

Blind at TFW weeks ago....there was a richer than expected quality I enjoyed. Clearly drank too soon but still enjoyable. From Josh...
